How do I wash and clean my SeaVees?

 We do not recommend machine washing your SeaVees. Exposing your SeaVees to water could alter the look of the material. If you choose to do so please note that it is at your own risk.

**Shoes that have been washed are no longer covered under our Craftsmanship Guarantee. 

SeaVees sources and develops the finest textiles and leathers from all over the world for our shoes. The materials we use are generally durable and depending on care they should last you quite a while.

We go to great lengths to deliver a shoe as close to perfect as possible. But once they leave us, it’s on you. We tried some of the best shoe cleaning products on the market and decided to develop our own custom formula using all-natural ingredients and made right here in California.

Here are three things you can do to protect and care for your SeaVees to keep them looking fresh and clean.



We suggest you purchase a sneaker protector to ensure the longevity of your sneakers. Waterproofing or fabric protectant spray is a prevention agent and not meant for cleaning.



We recommend using a mild dish soap and old toothbrush or rag to remove scuffs from the white side walls.



We have found that our linen, twill, and canvas sneakers can be easily cleaned with a stain removal pen. After a few applications, our team has removed stains such as hot sauce and coffee. You may also concoct a paste using stain removal powder and water. Gently apply the paste with an old sock, rag or towel to try and remove the stain.

We are still working on other delicate materials such as suede, leather and satin and suggest you consult a local cobbler or shoe repair store before attempting to clean your SeaVees.

That being said, we live in SeaVees and we’re happy to provide you with tips and tricks that have worked for us over the years.
